    Trailer Thread V

    The main cast will be teens (going for a Stranger Things vibe I guess). If the old cast is in it, will probably be as cameos or side characters.

    Star Trek Discovery #3

    Michelle Yeoh in talks to reprise her Discovery role in a spin-off series. Spoiler Warning: Don't read that article if you don't want to know spoilers from season 2 premiere of Discovery.

    US Politics: Shutbound & Down

    I've read that congress has six months in which it must vote to end or continue the state of emergency, but there is nothing stopping Pelosi from having that vote immediately after Trump would declare it. So she can shut it down, within six months or six seconds. It would be a spectacular failure for Trump.

    The Orville Season 2

    Now they're just doing the Discovery Voq plot. I wonder what all the Orville good / Discovery bad people have to say about that.

    Been watching The IT Crowd on netflix... Do people like this show? I thought people did, but it isn't as good as the hype for it. It's just a bunch of Oh Look! NERDSSSSS!!! jokes.

    Old thread is locked, this is a new thread; a faster, better, cheaper thread: Falcon Heavy is at the Cape assembled like an Avenger: Launching soon in January.

    Starhopper completed outer shell assembly at least -- I imagine that have to install all the avionics and test sensors now. Expected testing to begin in 4-8 weeks.

    Marvel Netflix

    I'm just going to assume DD, LC and IF have been lost as dust in Thanos' snap, but JJ and FC were not. Maybe after Endgame they'll unsnap onto Disney's streaming service, same actors but rebooted with new timelines.

    SpaceX's Big Falcon Topic 2

    It's worth discussing. There is a military advantage of placing a base on the Far side of the Moon -- you can shoot down incoming ships coming towards Earth from anywhere else in the Solar System. I know someone who suggest this might be a reason China wants a Farside base. You can effectively blockade Earth from competitors out in the solar system mining asteroids or Jovians moons for rare earth elements or lithium -- which China has huge financial interests in. Just being militarily there would dissuade anyone else doing the same thing to blockade China. So I'd expect a future militarization of the lunar Farside from China, Russia, the U.S., and Europeans as a mutual deterrent. This Chang'e 4 mission is on the Lunar South Pole though, and slightly over the edge to the Farside. China deserves applause for reaching the Farside, but it is far more significant about being at the south pole where the data is suggestive that there are lots of hydrogen rich deposits that are assumed to be water ice there. I don't know if this mission in particular is capable of determining the truth of that, but it is interesting, being the first rover there.

    This new year's eve, down with the flu instead of going out, I binged Ozark season 2. Last new year's eve I binged Dark - so it's over a year since it was released. When is season 2 of Dark??? I rarely rewatch shows, going to have to do it for this one.

    Saw Bohemian Rhapsody a few days ago on my b-day. Enjoyed it. Not really much to say about it. Amused by Mike Myer's cameo.

    I hope they do the Dark Phoenix story justice, but I don't know about Sophie Turner carrying a movie as the lead.

    It's actually about the strength / weight ratio at cryonic temperatures. Cost of materials isn't a huge part of the price of a rocket.. But it is stainless steel: It'll remain unpainted and polished to a mirror sheen. It's going to look so retro!

    SpaceX's Big Falcon Topic 2

    Next three launches: GPS III-2 - tomorrow likely (21st and last mission for the year) - expended booster stage to get to a Medium Earth Orbit (20200 km × 20200 km, 55.0°). Iridium 8 - January 8th. Landing on JRTI drone ship in Pacific. DM-1 - January 17th - Dragon Demo-1 uncrewed demo for the Commercial Crew program. Landing on OCISLY drone ship in Atlantic.

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    I think the context of "want your heart" was as compared to whatever intellectual thing I said in response to her question. She was opening up finally and said she thought I probably only do so when I can see someone reciprocate (true), which she says is very hard for her. I think she sort of sees me as a lab experiment to see part of herself. Of course I didn't focus on the context, just heard what I wanted to hear. The convo was kind of abstract, starting off with some verse of a poem she had published that she wanted to give to me in the middle of the night. I don't know wtf is going on. I responded with a complete poem I wrote on the fly. She said she thought we could create space for each other to write in. But in person? I don't know what that means either. Maybe she's as frustrated with me as I am with her. Communicating with her was like that episode of Next Gen "Darmok". We seemed to make progress then, but nothing since. The party too loud and too public for me to have a proper conversation that I've been trying to have for nearly a year now. There is another person i was interested in beginning in the fall, her total opposite in a lot of ways, we communicate really well, so it was a relief. But that girl is not interested, due to different cultures, and was totally surprised when I expressed interest. Somehow missed my awkward flirting which i thought she was receptive to was more than friendship. Shaka when the walls fell.
